Born in Badalona, Barcelona, Catalonia, Valerio began playing with Real Madrid Castilla – with whom he won the second division in 1996 – and Albacete Balompié. From 1997 to 2001 he represented Real Betis, playing 12 La Liga games (his first being on 1 November 1997 in a 2–3 home loss against Atlético Madrid, coming on as a substitute for Toni Prats who had been sent off in the 20th minute); the 2000–01 season was spent in the second level, as both Betis and Sevilla FC returned to the top flight.
After one campaign each in divisions three and two, with Elche CF and CD Tenerife respectively, Valerio moved in 2003 to UD Almería. In 2006–07 he appeared in four matches for the Andalusians, backing up first-choice Sander Westerveld as the club achieved a first-ever top level promotion.
In the 2007 summer, aged 34, Valerio returned to Elche. After only one season, he joined third division side Polideportivo Ejido, being regularly used over the course of three years and retiring in June 2011 at the age of 38.
